When configuring wired and wireless guest access, I cant find a way to have the lobby ambassador make one guest account that can access wired AND wireless guest network.

The lobby ambassador has to pick a profile. The wired and wireless guest profiles can not have the same name.

Is there a way to give a guestuser access to both the wired and wireless guest network.

Currently there isn't a way to accomplish this since the guest user name can exist only once and with one profile. The wireless and wired lans are separate configured entities.

As far as I know at this point it is considered working as intended. I have not seen a feature in the works but you may want to contact your account team to file a PERS if it is a needed feature.

The only way to get that working is if you authenticate WebAuth users to a radius server. Then you can have the same username and password. If your radius server has a local DB like ACS, but there is no lobby adim on ACS. We have implemented NAC Guest Server which has a lobby admin feature, but it is pretty expensive!
